  11. Hi thanks for that will give it a try , my s3 has got the pipe connected from the bottom of the air box to the crank so will check and make sure that its not obstructed , thanks again.
  12. Hi mate ,ive also had this problem , tried a service kit on slave cylinder to the clutch - CRAP ! so i invested in a new slave cylinder and bled it with brand new oil , hey presto problem solved , also another tip when trying for reverse engage second gear and release clutch to biteing point then depress clutch and select reverse this usually works on mine, hope this helps.
  13. Hi thanks for that, i have also heard about this pump but havent got a s3 mannual yet , one of the mates is trying to get hold of one for me , I have been told it may be something to do with petrol vapour still in the air box , can you let me know how you get on once the pump and celenoid are fitted , thanks .
  14. Yes mate think it was me , only just joined the forum today and saw you have spotted me , what were you driving ?
  15. My series 3 lotus esprit 1986 has a big problem starting after being run..... Once the fans have come on and the engine is upto good temperature, the problem occurs when i try to restart the engine after about 15mins.This is when it has to turn over for ages before it will start again. Can anybody help me? or has anyone experienced this too?
